This beautiful bow has the sound to match its looks. It has a lot of bite and projection when pushed; however it can be delicate and sweet when played lightly. Its tone overall is warm, adding color nicely to bright cellos. This bow has a very crisp and even bounce, making fast spicatto passages less taxing on the right hand. Overall, playing with this bow is very comfortable and smooth, allowing for freedom of expression while being able to trust the bow to play its part.
